My main system died. It was running NetBSD/i386 HEAD from around
I tried booting the 2.5 disk on an amd64 system and the keyboard didn't
work. (Known problem with open PRs.) So I tried to boot with "boot -c" so
I could "disable ohci" which has been my fix in the past.
But "boot -c" just hung.
Anyone seen that?
Sorry for vague details as I didn't write it down and now the system is
running with different disk.
My next test will be to boot with a live CD while I have my 2.5 hard disk
in the system so I can mount and transfer my data to another system on my
Any recent live CDs available? (I don't want to create one now and the one
I found was over a year old.)
